Farewell, Western Belle

from by Valyermo



I can’t tell you I love you, without it being a lie
I don’t know what else to sell you
So I’ll just tell you goodbye, It’s alright
yeah, it’ll be alright

Sometimes you eat the bar and, sometimes the bar eats you
I don’t want to break your heart, darling,
I just don’t know what else to do…
how ‘bout you?

Love is lost, more often than not
But I’ll never regret, that we gave it a shot
Put your hat back on my dear, and hold your head up high
You’ll find better than me, no reason to cry

There’s no more honest work here, for a dishonest man
I’m pushin’ out at dawn and, headin’ southwest as fast as I can…
as fast as I can

Ridin’ through the Mojave Desert, on the Old Spanish Trail
If I should lay down to die here, I hope you find someone to love you well
my Western Belle
